The food is outstanding and the pub itself has a lovely atmosphere, it is such a shame that yesterday evening bar staff were so miserable and unhelpful. What happened to service with a smile?!!! Both my husband and I felt uncomfortable when we had to go up... More

Visited for lunch and was impressed! Good variety of options on the menu and service was very good! Staff very attentive. Food was lovely and came in good portion sizes. Loved the mini desert and hot drink option for when you're too full for a full sized pudding! Would definitely visit again!
